Grand Mesa Wedding

A Snowy Colorado Wedding | Taylor + Thomas

Record snowfall on the Grand Mesa made for an Epic Snowy Colorado Wedding for Taylor and Thomas!  The canyon like paths that led to the cabins and through the trees were so amazing to see.  I honestly don't think I've seen that much snow in my entire life living in Colorado!  Thomas and Taylor embraced the beauty as they said I do and wish to give thanks to their many friends and family who helped lend a hand to see that their day went off without a hitch!  The day was stunningly beautiful, see for yourself...

Vendors for the day included:

Venue and Catering: Mesa Lakes Resort || Wedding Cake: Simply Cakes by Camberly || Floral Design: Country Elegance Florist || Bridal Gown and Bridesmaids Dresses: David's Bridal || Men's Attire: Boot Barn || Bride and Groom Rings: Kay Jewelers || Photography: Carrie Johnson Photography

Inspiration Winter Wedding Shoot | Colorado Wedding Photographer

Why plan a winter wedding?

As a wedding vendor I know that the busiest months for marriage are May through September and you can be sure that couples book the vendors they want up to a year in advance.  Couples often miss out on the perfect venue or wedding photographer or even the most popular DJ because the summer months fill up so quickly.  So, why not plan a winter wedding?

Here are a few reasons you might want to consider holding off until the snow flies!

~ A winter wedding provides a magical feel of "winter wonderland"!

~  Guests schedules are less busy during the winter months because most people plan family vacations throughout the warmer season.  You are sure to see a lot more RSVP's from your guest list!

~  The snow and dreary backdrops are surprisingly beneficial when planning out your color scheme as they pretty much go with anything.  You can add as much contrast as you like without worrying about whether or not your wedding colors will clash with the freshly mowed green grass.

~  If you are a holiday fanatic then you have the option of planning for a Christmas or New Year's themed wedding

~   Most of all:  Winter weddings can be much lighter on the pocket book and your budget as most vendors offer discounts during the slower seasons!  (That's reason enough right there!)

Check out the video below to see what myself and the pros at I Do and Parties Too and The Bride and Bloom Design Company  can do to help you plan the perfect winter wedding!
